The original owner was James T. Gordon of the meat-packing firm of Gordon, Ironside and Fares.
During the 1920s it was owned by the Bawlf family, which founded the Winnipeg Grain Exchange.
Victor Sifton, owner and publisher of the Winnipeg Free Press, lived in this stately home during the 40's and 50's.
A former senator, Douglas Everett, lived in & meticulously maintained this home until earlier this year.
A businessman bought 514 Wellington earlier this year. His intention is to demolish the house, level the landscaped lot, and fill it with 24,000 square feet of condos.
